A Monster of his Making

The pulp magazine moniker was considered a put-down, referring to the cheap newsprint paper on which the monthly stories were printed and distributed. The implication was that the “literature” that was printed on the cheap paper was worthy of nothing better.
Pulp magazines were targeted to specific genres, detective, science fiction, romance, horror and beyond. Their cheap cover prices and low prodcution costs made them inexpensive fodder for young readers looking for popular entertainment. Often marketed to young men and boys using lurid illustrations combining women, violence and fetishism, the literary content of these periodicals was often overlooked.

Pulp-Pouri Theatre is a series of audio dramas each based on a specific pulp fiction genres, and created in the style of old-time radio.
